NHS “sticking plaster” cash promise is nothing like enough

Posted on: 17th June 2018

Today’s hastily cobbled together face-saving NHS cash initiative by the PM is nothing like enough. It won’t even come close to resolving the serious crisis her Government has placed our NHS in. Welcome as it is, the extra funding is a more of a sticking plaster for the tattered reputation of the Conservative Party than […]

National Park for Cornwall? Yes please

Posted on: 7th June 2018

I would support the case being made for a National Park for Cornwall. The Government’s relaxation of planning controls is harming our environment. The planning system is fuelled by greed rather than by need. Weak planning simply means we get more of what we don’t want and less of what we need. I work to […]

Nurses deserve a real champion

Posted on: 11th May 2018

Today (12th May) is National Nurses Day. Nurses are the ones with the patients. The backbone of our NHS. But they’re also massively undervalued. Many work in clinically unsafe environments where understaffing undermines the ability of committed nurses to give their patients the standard of care they seek to uphold. Safe staffing When i was […]

Liberal Democrats on the way back

Posted on: 4th May 2018

Commenting on last night’s local election results, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said: “We are on course for what could be our best set of local election results in a decade and that is thanks to the outstanding efforts of our members. The Liberal Democrats have enjoyed gains across England, from Hull to Gosport, Liverpool […]

MPs must come clean – their policy will close more post offices

Posted on: 29th April 2018

  It’s time Conservative MPs came clean with local people about their real policy towards the our post offices. If the Government carries on as it is we’ll lose many more much valued local post offices. Many local people in communities like The Lizard and Newlyn are worried about the future of their services, and […]

Conservatives more concerned with how they look than in how our NHS is struggling under their mishandled supervision…

Posted on: 24th April 2018

So Jeremy Hunt has written to just fellow Conservative MPs to ask what he should do to make him and his Party look less bad. This after all of those years of distain towards and mismanagement of our NHS. Jeremy Hunt wants to drape himself in an NHS which is a thousand times more popular […]

Dog whistle politics comes back to bite Theresa May

Posted on: 17th April 2018

We shouldn’t be shocked to discover how prejudiced the Conservatives have been in their treatment of British people who came here lawfully more than 50 years ago. Theresa May’s mask has slipped before. The Conservatives may use artful language. But we know what they mean when they blow the race and immigration dog whistle. The shocking […]

The Government not our hospital staff should be in ‘special measures’

Posted on: 6th April 2018

    Once again, Government hospital inspectors criticise hard-working NHS staff for… the failures of Government. Today CQC Hospital inspectors have again slated Cornwall’s main Hospital. But most of it comes down to underfunding and under staffing. Culture of bullying A quote from the husband of one of the hospital’s registered nurses on the Cornwall […]
